They are episodes considered “out of canon”, that is, they always take place outside the normal continuity of the series and have no pretense of being realistic. They are much more violent and dark than the rest of the episodes of the series.

the first episode, Treehouse of Horror, aired on October 25, 1990 as part of the second season and was inspired by EC Comics horror stories. There are over 30 special Halloween episodes, with one airing each year.

The episodes contain several trademarks, including the aliens Kang and Kodos, “scary names” in the end credits for the crew making the episode, a special version of the opening sequence, and sci-fi and horror film parodies.

Series staff say special Halloween episodes are particularly difficult to produce and scripts are often done after many rewrites and animators often have to design new characters and backgrounds.
